Winners of Live Gaming Awards 2018 Revealed

Posted on May 7, 2018 | 8:45 am

26th of April 2018 marked the first edition of the Live Gaming Awards, in a glamorous ceremony held at the end of Live Casino Summit in Barcelona, Spain. Many of the industry’s top professionals, players and owners attended the event to celebrate the best live casino achievements of the year.

Another aim of the summit was to educate and inform, with keynote speeches from the CEO of Ezugi Kfir Kugler and representatives from Leo Vegas and Authentic Gaming amongst others. Also during the day were discussion panels on a variety of topics and a live roulette tournament.

Three awards were given out on the night: Best Live Dealer Overall Product, Best Branded Studio and Best In-Casino streaming Live Dealer Provider. Keep reading below to find out who won!
All in all, the Live Gaming Summit was truly inspiring event for the industry and an exciting addition the calendar, and long may it continue.


The three companies picking up well deserved awards on the night were:

  • Best Live Dealer Overall ProductBetConstruct
  • Best Branded Studio – LeoVegas: Chambre Séparée
  • Best In-Casino streaming Live Dealer ProviderEvolution Gaming

First up, BetConstruct who bagged the overall best product award. BetConstruct literally offers almost any kind of service an online casino could need – from gaming platforms, to marketing, banking solutions and sportsbook facilities. Known for its forward thinking operations, including such stunts as releasing its unique player management system for free on open source site GitHub, BetConstruct has been making waves in the industry over the past few years.

When it comes to live casino games, they don’t have the best market penetration – in fact we only know of a few casinos that offer their games specifically, one of these being VBet. Here, BetConstruct offers roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker in a range of languages you are unlikely to find at many other casinos.

They have live dealers in Farsi (Persian), 
& Ukrainian as well as the more standard Russian, Turkish and English options. They also let players watch the action and join the game without first making an account – which is a rarity in the live casino market and quite a cool feature.

They also offer two unique ‘bet on’ games, where player can bet on the winners of a hand in baccarat or poker. The odds are calculated on the fly, in real time, by the software as the game plays – pretty cool! While they may not have the market coverage of Evolution, BetConstruct are not afraid to do new things or take risks in all areas of their business. This is why, in our humble opinion, they were thoroughly deserving of their best overall product award!

Best Branded Studio – LeoVegas: Chambre Séparée

Next up for an award was Leo Vegas, who picked up the Best Branded Studio gong for their Chambre Séparée live casino section. Built in collaboration with Evolution at their studio in Riga, Latvia, no other casino has gone as all in on their private table offering as Leo Vegas. With luxurious looking decor, complete with Leo Vegas branding and exclusive live casino dealers spread across 10 live casino games, Leo have been pushing the boundaries when it comes to collaboration between game provider and casino operator.

They also offer a unique ‘silent blackjack’ table, which takes a more serious tone. Party blackjack this isn’t – the live dealers here are banter (and sometimes it even seems like smile) free, allowing players maximum concentration. Certainly a novel idea, especially for the more dedicated players amongst you. Worthy award winners then!

Best In-Casino streaming Live Dealer Provider – Evolution Gaming

Lastly, but certainly never least, came Evolution Gaming themselves who bagged the award for Best In-Casino Streaming Live Dealer Provider. Which is a bit of a mouthful of an award, but certainly still prestigious. Although they might have had their eyes on the best overall product title, nonetheless this award is a recognition of the effort they have put into providing top tier live to land casino collaborations.

Their Dragonara roulette, streamed from Malta’s first casino that opened in 1964, is a premier example of this technology, giving players a sophisticated and cultured live casino experience. Another is their partnership with Genting International Casino in Birmingham.

This UK wide brand live streams a roulette table from their own casino floor, in a nice mix between private tables and live casino streaming – making you feel even more a part of the action. If you can’t travel to a casino with your mates, this could definitely be the next best thing. We can see why the extremely consistent quality and innovation of Evolution helped them bag this award, and congratulations to them!
